Death to German Occupants!
This profile represents an example of an unknown unit, characterized by
a slogan "smert nemetskim okkupantam!" (death to the German occupants!).
Someone hypothized that this was the plane of Dolgushin of 180 IAP
of the Moscow PVO.
Its characteristic seem to be:
it is a late type aircraft, probably with slats;
green/black camouflage and light blue undersurfaces, with unusually low
large red stars with very thin light outlines, probably white;
equipped with radio;
the tail wheel is without the doors;
the spinner, not clearly visible in the photo, seems to have its
top painted red;
the slogan, probably painted white, is on the right side; it could be on
the left side too, as hypothized on the drawing.
